We also don't really like beans mixed into lettuce salad, so we make separate bean and chickpea salads

Bean salad: frozen chopped veggie mix- green beans, peas, corn, carrots etc. defrost or warm up in microwave, drain, add a can of mixed beans washed and drained- kidney, white, navy, whatever, or a can of lentils. Add some chopped celery, red pepper, pickles, red onion, sun dried tomatoes...dress with red wine vinaigrette.

For chickpeas- can chickpeas rinsed and drained, add chopped celery, red pepper, pickles, red onion. Dress with one tblspn mayo, lemon juice, garlic cube, dill cube, salt, pepper and mustard.

Both last in fridge a few days, so we make for Shabbos and can have for lunch/dinner until Wednesday.

Also love the vacuum packed beets- add to lettuce salads or plain with lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, little squeeze of honey.

Cabbage salads- so easy and can basically dress with anything. We usually do apple cider vinegar, olive oil, mustard, bit of maple syrup, salt, pepper. Add toasted nuts and sesame for crunch and filling. Also can add edamame, green onion, craisins...

I do pizza on low carb wraps sometimes I add mushrooms, tomatoes peppers or onions

Steak with grilled veggies

Grilled chicken sliced and added to lettuce salad. If I have time I add roasted veggies to this as well

String beans with everything spice and Garlic salt roasted on 425 for 25 minutes

Schnitzel dipped in egg and breaded in almond flour, sesame seeds and spices

Shakshouka

Roasted eggplant boats (C. Apfelbaum’s) with sauce and cheese, tomatoes and cheese or Israeli salad and falafel

Spana Jibn (Syrian spinach quiche)
Sauté onion
Add garlic, salt, pepper
16 oz bag frozen spinach
Take off heat and mix in 8 eggs lots of shredded cheese. I like it really cheesy. Sometimes I add cream cheese.
Pour into pans and bake on 375 about 40 minutes

I make a ton of bean salads.

Black beans with couscous/bulghur, corn, scallions, mini cukes, grape tomatoes, dressed with olvie oil salt/pepper/white balsamic/lemon juice

Same with lentils with beets, rice, dried mint, mini cukes, mini tomatoes, scallions, same dressing.



I also make ribbons out of zucchini with a vegetable peeler, and saute in olive oil.

Or Pistacho pesto on zucchini noodles (you need only pistachios and an immersion blender, no oil)

Thank you everyone who took time to respond. There is so much here for me to try!

Pumpkin, how do you make pistachio pesto? Just blend pistachios? Can I use this on fish or chicken?

Dankbar, what’s red cheese salad?

Any other cookbook suggestions?

Not a cookbook but you could check out tasty. It’s an app I got a lot of inspiration from there.
